Simpson and the donkey

Peter Cochrane

The making of a legend. Anniversary edition.

The simple tale of Simpson and his donkey is the pre-eminent legend of heroism. It is the story of a humble water carrier, a rescuer of wounded men, a tale of compassion, stoic persistence, with a tragic end. His tale is an integral part of the ANZAC story.

Across time, a simple tale can acquire a complicated history.This is what happened to the man with the donkey and is the subject of this book, Simpson's 'afterlife', the legend.
